I'm asking for clarification.  I don't think it's the calendar and
file space and such.  One objection raised was that mailman doesn't
know that a person can have multiple email addresses so it takes some
finagling to get forwarding set up right, and then we admins can't see
how many actual people are on the list, because some people are listed
multiple times.
